Fairview is a busy suburb of Dublin city just 1.5km to Connolly station 2km from the River Liffey. The site is ideal for a mixed use or residential development given the popularity of Fairview for both convenience and general retailing as well as services and residential lettings. There is an abundance of local facilities and busy parades with shops, bars and restaurants all enjoying high footfalls from the adjoining residential areas. Transport links are good with the DART, on Clontarf Road a short walk away and a very regular bus service to tohe city centre. There is a strong demand but low supply of new homes for both purchase and letting. This property is adjacent St. Joseph’s CBS School and only 10 minutes’ walk to East Point Business Park and Croke Park. Marino and Clontarf are close by.
